    It will be fine! I recently (January) brought my dog up to school with me (she was living with my parents) and the first few days I felt like a new pet owner- stressing about getting her settled into...

    Both of my kitties are quite bow-legged in front. It's especially cute on the polydactyl- it gives him a nice swagger when he walks (even cuter because of his little jiggling fat pad).

    I agree with the mental exercises. My dog is more tired/content after a 15min training session than an hour long walk (unless we're doing intensive training activities ON the walk)!

    If I could build my own horse it would probably be 15.0-15.1hh.

    Agree with NoDQ- I think with cats (as long as they get along) the litterbox is really the limiting factor, within reason of course.

    I've known of deals where the amount of the lease price that goes towards the purchase decreases as the lease goes on. For example, if the people decide in the first 6months (of a year long lease)...

    I'm pretty sure Bisquick's secret ingredient is crack.

    The tethering really works wonders- my girl didn't get potty trained until I adopted her (1-1.5years old), and now trusts that I will take her out at proper intervals for potty breaks. When I moved...

    I guess I just don't understand what the problem with the vet was?
    Your dog was hurt, the vet clinic was packed with appointments, an exam yielded nothing broken, and you were sent home with pain...

    My kitty has been defrosting now for about 5 months now (with a much less intensive protocol than yours), and is getting to a point where even the crazypsychoenergetic dog doesn't get her too upset...

    My guy gets cranky when it's cold out so I've been really focusing on a GOOD warmup every time I ride. Lots of really subtle movements at the walk (shoulder-ins, leg yields, bending exercises) before...

    Purchased 2, vetted 3

    I've purchased 2 horses in my life, and between those two searches I've only vetted 3 (2 of those being the ones I bought). I don't vet until I'm sure I want the horse. The two that I bought did not...

    Whenever my horse drinks water, he sips it really slowly and then sticks his tongue out a bit to try and keep the water from dripping out like what happens to most horses when they swallow their last...
